Joelsen, Jo

Jo Joelson co-founded London Fieldworks with Bruce Gilchrist in 2000 to represent their art partnership. They work across installation, sculpture, architecture, film and publishing with works made in the landscape, for galleries, screen and radio. An urban-rural practice has been central to projects, with many involving a complex inter-working of social, natural, and technological worlds. Concerned with ecology and the environment they generate material from experience of place; exploring the authenticity of mediated experience, history, and culture. They have visited and made work in remote and rural parts of the world and in urban green spaces in the UK, using fieldwork methodologies to explore and reflect on human engagement with nature. Their works often attend to place and to habitat, investigating the meeting points of culture and nature through constructed interventions and installations.
